I was looking at the Discovery Channel website this week. Who doesn’t like the Discovery Channel? There are many good shows, but I am not really a fan of Texas Car Wars.
I saw this interesting article by Bambi Turner on “Tens Ways Artificial Intelligence Will Affect Our Lives”. The first way was for “Taming the Weather”. It talks about how scientists will be able to predict the weather better by using artificial intelligence to shift through complex data to spot patterns the human eye misses. This seemed timely with the terrible Hurricane Sandy that the East Coast experienced this week.
Some of the other ways mentioned are interesting. I do not agree that Transhumanism represents the ultimate application of artificial intelligence to human life. Take a look at the list and tell me what you think?
